charming little ditty

Well, so much for that being the final post for 2006…

…ahem.

Anyway, not that I believe in aesthetics, or want to claim that beauty is the be-all and end-all of music, or that the value of art/entertainment is found through some kind of nonsensical list-making big-dick daftness, but… just have a listen to an ol’ YouTubified clip, and maybe I think it’s one of the prettiest things I’ve encountered in a while.

Hell yeah! Bill Frisell has figured prominently in so much the best live music I've ever heard. His recorded output is pretty great too. Thanks for pointing me toward that clip. That's a great vintage Frisell sound there.

Frisell (warts an’ all) is one of my models, so I plan to write about him, his sound, and his approach in the future.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by!

S, tig
